Trip Planner: Europe / Italy / Veneto / Province of Venice / City of Venice / Venice / Punta della Dogana
Housed in Venice's old customs building, Punta della Dogana is now a contemporary art museum. The name refers to the triangular area of the city where the Grand Canal meets the Guidecca canal, but it has now become synonymous with the building and its art exhibits. Previously empty for decades, the building was restored in 2009 by French art collector François Pinault, whose €20 million renovation showcases the building's "industrial and minimalist soul." Stand at the tip of the triangle, enjoying views of the vast sea ahead and the canals behind, before heading into the building for a look at some of Venice's finest contemporary art. Put Punta della Dogana at the forefront of your travel plans using our Venice day trip planner.
Punta della Dogana reviews
Elegant view of Venice from there. It's worth a walk and spend time there. Sitting on the edge of canal. Very nice place for take a photo and view of some small island. Highly recommend.
Nice view from there, quite peaceful, not so many people around as usually.
